A clown with his pants falling down
Or the dance that's a dream of romance
Or the scene where the villain is mean
That's entertainment

The lights on the lady in tights
Or the bride with the guy on the side
Or the ball where she gives it her all
That's entertainment

The plot could be hot, simply teeming with sex
A gay divorcee who is after her ex
It could be Oedipus Rex
Where a chap kills his father and causes lots of bother

The clerk who is thrown out of work
By the boss who is thrown for a loss
By the skirt who is doing him dirt
The world is a stage, the stage is a world of entertainment

It might be a scene like you see on the screen
A swain being slain for the love of a queen
Some great Shakespearean scene
Where a ghost and a prince meet, and everything ends in mincemeat

The guy could be waving the flag
That began with the mystical hand
Hip hooray, the American way
The world is a stage, the stage is a world of entertainment
